The Nekbakht Foundation has made a number of books available on this site as downloadable documents, free of charge. These can be purchased as hardcopies as well. 

The main publications are the newly transcribed versions of Inayat Khan’s lectures taken down in shorthand, as well as a collection of his Sayings. 

Apart from that, the Foundation has been instrumental in publishing a number of books about Inayat Khan’s Sufism and the times he lived in. 

A list of these and how to procure them is provided. 

The Foundations promotes new issues of existing books and plans to add new titles regularly to this portfolio. Recently, the Foundation has started a Kindle account with Amazon and has started publishing books via Printing on Demand (POD). This is cheaper for buyers and obviates the need to maintain stocks of books. 

Published Books

The new transcripts of the shorthand of Inayat Khan’s lectures were used to republish the following books.
